If you're familiar with Ricky Gervais' library of work, by now you've been introduced to Karl Pilkington. Described as a "little round-headed buffoon" by Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the reluctant star was sent on a trip around the globe.

If you're not familiar with the man that is Karl Pilkington, take some time to watch a few clips from the Ricky Gervais Show here—as Karl's idiocy is the main topic of choice. In An Idiot Abroad, Ricky and Stephen send poor Karl out into the world for the sake of a good laugh. This week, Karl went to India, where he was generally unimpressed by the nation's beauty. He liked the Taj Mahal alright, though.


An Idiot Abroad airs on Saturdays at 10pm on the Science Channel.
